By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Investment Banking & Brokerage industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Bgc Partners-A ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 12.1%. Houlihan Lokey I is next with a projected earnings growth of 14.7%. Goldman Sachs Gp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 16.0%.
